It appears the universe may not have started with a BANG! That is if the latest science challenging the notion of the Big Bang Theory is correct.

This revelation has gotten members of our ‘Underground Knowledge’ discussion group on Goodreads.com fairly worked up, with those of an atheistic or scientific bent butting heads with those of a religious persuasion as members debate the role of God in the creation of the universe.

It (the discussion that is) all began with a comment by a group moderator. He drew attention to a news item that quotes a theoretical physicist as declaring new research suggests the age of the universe could be infinite. That same article quotes another scientist as declaring “We (scientists) really have no right to say that the universe begins with a big bang.”

The news item referred to is at: https://au.news.yahoo.com/technology/…

The research referred to, incidentally, pertains to a paper published Feb. 4 in the journal Physical Letters B, and another paper that is currently under peer review, which was published in the preprint journal arXiv.

One of our members responded by quoting Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. She adds, “It’s the simple truth that I believe in.”

Another member countered by saying, “Unfortunately it’s not a simple truth: it is not simple and may not be the truth. E.g. who or what created god? According to Genesis, the universe was created about 6500 BC or something, whereas we know the Universe to be 13.8 billion years old. So Genesis is wrong anyway. “Who or what is god” is equivalent to the question to which Physics is seeking an answer. The big bang hypothesis assumes quantum mechanics is equivalent to god… With the big bang, there is a better explanation for reality and god isn’t needed. By the Occam’s razor principle we can therefore do without him.

To which the first member answered, “To answer the question, “who or what created god?” Nothing and no one created God. God has simply always existed. He was. He is. And He will be.”

 

Members’ (further) comments follow. (Names withheld):

At the risk of again being laughed at; the paths to god encompass the pre-destined pursuits of failing “knowledge” and the beauty of faith.

 

Other hypotheses such as a recycling universe, which is certainly not a new idea, may have a different role for quantum mechanics. Something that goes on forever (a recycling universe) is unsatisfactory as it doesn’t explain how it got there in the first place. Why is there something rather than nothing?

 

How does the new proposal handle the background radiation issue? Some sites worth reading: http://www.big-bang-theory.com/http://news.nationalgeographic.com/ne…

 

I believe the Big Bang Theory is very ridiculous and requires EVEN MORE FAITH than believing that a loving God created the universe in six days (which is totally the truth, and very simple to accept.)

 

Keep in mind most modern Christians do not state the world is 4-6,000 years old anymore. Most accept that the Earth is billions of years old as per science’s findings. The belief that it’s only a few thousand years old is now about as popular a Christian belief as the old Biblical viewpoint that the Earth is the center of the Universe. Certainly some Christian sects and other minority offshoots (e.g. Seventh Day Adventists) push the old 4,000 year old Biblical belief, but not mainstream Christianity as a whole…FYI, the Aboriginal (native) people in Australia are estimated to go back to around 50,000 years.

 

The bottom line is the Bible was written by men (not any supernatural entity) and written in a time when people had little scientific understanding…

 

The Bible was Not written by men. It was spoken through men but God-breathed (God spoke it it to them or supernaturally showed them what to write).

 

Any Christian scholar will inform you the Bible was most certainly written by men. Afterall, nobody is saying the books that formed the Bible fell out of the sky already written. Each book in the Bible had authors – hence the Book of Job, the Gospel of Mark, the Gospel of Matthew etc. Furthermore, it’s historically proven many or all of these books were edited at later dates (e.g. the Council of Nicea biblical edits in 353AD conducted by the Romans).

 

There are actually various other scientific theories that have been proposed regarding the background radiation. For example, Japanese scientist and member of this group Takaaki Musha has proposed that the cosmic background radiation is not due to the after-glow of a Big Bang, but rather it’s due to the Cherenkov radiation from tachyon pairs created from a ZPF vacuum.

 

Back to the point about the universe possibly recycling. Didn’t Hubble himself have that idea? Wasn’t he the one who thought up the phrase “big bang” as a frustrated way of saying how silly the whole idea was? Of course science is full of silly ideas that ultimately survive the full test of scientific enquiry, such as evolution itself. It will probably take a long time to dismiss the “big bang” theory [no pun intended!]. We can get very close to the point when the current universe began — a tiny fraction of a second. After this point the laws of physics as currently known can work to produce the universe as it is. However close we can get we may never know for sure how the universe began.

 

There may indeed be a few ideas going around such as parallel universes and/or holographic loop, but these don’t seem testable. This makes it unsatisfactory. I can’t possibly see how the universe could be physically infinite. Closed, certainly. In other words if we keep racing for the exit then we can’t get out, even after an infinite time. This is because ultimately space curves in on itself according to principles of general relativity.

Ask a hundred people for their definition of the term genius and you’ll likely get a hundred different responses, including widely varying responses. We acknowledge and expand on this in the summary in our new release bestseller GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 1)

Here’s the relevant excerpt from the book:

Though we are not historians, it’s our impression that in bygone eras the term genius was most used, or, at least often used, when describing brilliant artists like Leonardo da Vinci. Then, in the 20th Century, the term was more often reserved for academics like Albert Einstein. Now, in the 21st Century, it has assumed a broader meaning and is applied to individuals who have achieved extraordinary results in a wide variety of careers, pastimes and fields of endeavor that transcend academia.

Increasingly, we see references in the media and elsewhere to scientific genius or artistic genius or sporting genius, which supports this evolving definition of the word.

Certainly, dictionary definitions (of genius) allow for a broad interpretation. For example, common dictionary definitions include “exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability” and “an exceptionally intelligent person or one with exceptional skill in a particular area of activity.”

A cursory look at our Thesaurus offers mastermind, prodigy, brain, intellect, virtuoso and even whiz kid as alternatives to the word genius.

We hope by now it is clear to you that genius can come in many forms besides the obvious academic giants like Einstein and Stephen Hawking – if in fact you were ever in doubt.

The term genius can legitimately be applied to certain sportsmen (à la golfer Tiger Woods and tennis player Roger Federer), business executives (Sir Richard Branson and Steve Jobs), artists (Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock), film directors (Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick) – and the list goes on.

 

For what it’s worth, our definition of genius is: Someone who demonstrates rare intellect, who successfully connects dots between seemingly unconnected things and who sees what others don’t to achieve revolutionary outcomes and extraordinary results.

 

With that in mind, it may be timely to remind you of what German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said about genius: “Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.”

Given the examples in this book, it should now be evident there have always been individuals learning at speeds many or most mainstream educationalists would have us believe are not possible.

From speed-reading US presidents like JFK and Roosevelt, to great polymaths such as Archimedes and da Vinci, to savants like Kim Peek and Daniel Tammet, to intelligence agents and their ilk, history is full of people achieving intellectual feats well beyond the norm.

We concede it cannot be proven that elite groups are withholding some of the most advanced learning methods from mainstream society. Even so, it’s pretty obvious that little-known accelerated learning techniques do exist in one form or another – techniques (and technologies) capable of increasing IQ.

After reading Genius Intelligence, it should also be obvious that geniuses aren’t usually born geniuses, or, to put it another way, they aren’t necessarily born geniuses. Having studied the lives of numerous geniuses, we were surprised to discover most utilized – or, from a young age, were exposed to – various brain activation methods on their respective journeys to becoming acknowledged masters of their fields.

We have detailed, or at least touched on, many of those methods in this book and also given examples of individuals who reached the top of their respective fields employing their favored brain activation methods and disciplines.

We refer to the likes of business tycoons such as Rupert Murdoch who practice Transcendental Meditation, Hollywood stars like Gwyneth Paltrow who consume Ormus and Robin Williams who used isolation tanks. And other examples like bestselling author and life coach Anthony Robbins who mastered speed-reading, Apple founder Steve Jobs who practiced Yoga for mental inspiration, and former world heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson who used hypnosis before each fight.

It should now be abundantly clear many of those who reach the top of their fields use rare or little known methods to improve their mental powers to get the jump on the competition – be that in the intelligence, business, political, arts/entertainment, literary or sporting arenas, or, indeed, in any or all sectors of life.

We trust you’ll now agree the brain’s potential is the human potential!

As technology evolves and new scientific breakthroughs occur – such as revolutionary smart drugs and brain stimulation devices – one thing seems certain: super-intelligence will be an option for everyone in the future.

The signs are that future is not far off. For the elite, or for those in the know at least, it seems the future has already arrived…

******************************************

A book critic who reviewed The Ninth Orphan, book one in our thriller series, criticized our protagonist Nine (the ninth-born orphan) for having an IQ, or intelligence quotient, higher than Einstein’s. The strong implication in the review was that this was a ridiculous character decision we, the authors, had made.

Einstein 1921 by F Schmutzer - restoration.jpg

Einstein’s IQ shaded by others.

That all sounds like a valid criticism on the surface, but had this critic gone beyond his own sphere of knowledge and done a little research he would have discovered there are many people whose IQ’s have been recorded to be higher than Einstein’s.

We address this in our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ in which we highlight the intelligence quotient of other amazing individuals.

American author Marilyn Vos Savant, for example, has an IQ of 192; Russian chess grandmaster and former world champion Garry Kasparov has an IQ of 194. Incidentally, Einstein’s IQ was estimated in the 1920’s to between 160 and 190.

But wait, there’s much more when it comes to the world of super geniuses…

Quite a few individuals have tested in excess of a 200 IQ score, including South Korean civil engineer Kim Ung-yong (210), former child prodigy and NASA employee Christopher Hirata (225) and Australian mathematician Terence Tao (225-230).

And last but not least is American child prodigy, mathematician and politician William James Sidis who had an IQ of 250-300. He graduated grammar school at age six, went to Harvard University at age 11 and graduated cum laude at the age of 16. Sidis, who died in 1944, could fluently speak 40 languages by the time he reached adulthood.

William James Sidis 1914.jpg

William James Sidis…IQ 250 plus.

Remember, the average IQ is 100 and approximately 50% of those tested score between 90 and 110.

According to the book IQ and the Wealth of Nations, by Dr. Richard Lynn and Dr. Tatu Vanhanen, the top five countries in terms of average IQ’s of their citizens are Hong Kong (107), South Korea (106), Japan (105), Taiwan (104) and Singapore (103). Further down the list, China, New Zealand and the UK share equal 12th position with a 100 average, while the US is in 19th position with an average citizen IQ of 98.

However, many scholars in the 21st Century now believe IQ scores aren’t everything and it’s likely areas of intelligence exist that cannot be measured in any test. This is possibly substantiated by the number of successful and iconic individuals who recorded very low IQ scores. These include the once highly articulate and outspoken boxer Muhammad Ali who, as a young man, scored only 78 – an IQ so low it supposedly denotes a mild mental disability!

And of course, the list of the world’s so-called most intelligent excludes extremely bright individuals in impoverished parts of the world where IQ’s are, or were, rarely tested. The Indian mathematical genius, Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920), was an example of such incredible geniuses who defy all explanation.

Dr. Takaaki Musha refers to Ramanujan in the Foreword of GENIUS INTELLIGENCE, mentioning how he was inspired by the gentleman’s advanced mathematical findings.

Born into poverty in Erode, India, Ramanujan discovered extraordinary mathematical formulas despite being self-taught with no formal training in mathematics. He changed the face of mathematics as we know it and left many highly-educated and acclaimed Western mathematicians completely gobsmacked.

Furthermore, the other high-IQ individuals mentioned earlier are only in the top bracket of those who agreed to undergo IQ tests and allow their scores to be published.

It’s quite conceivable certain elite individuals belonging to secret societies, mystery schools or intelligence agencies do not reveal their IQ scores. That secret intelligence factor was the basis for our fictional Pedemont orphans in The Orphan Trilogy whom we either state or imply have IQ’s of around 200 or higher.

The Orphan Trilogy (The Ninth Orphan / The Orphan Factory / The Orphan Uprising)

Pedemont orphans veritable geniuses..

As a result of the accelerated learning techniques within the diverse curriculum that begins before they can even walk or talk, the orphans can assimilate and retain phenomenal amounts of information. By their teens, the child prodigies are more knowledgeable even than adult geniuses. They can solve complex problems, are fully knowledgeable about almost any current world subject or historical event, and are to all intents and purposes organic supercomputers and human library databases.

Our orphans are exposed to highly advanced learning methods so that they will have at their disposal all the necessary skills and information to be able to overcome life-and-death problems that may arise on future espionage assignments. They’re taught there is no challenge or question that cannot be overcome, solved or answered as long as they fully utilize the power of their minds.

Each child at the Pedemont Orphanage eventually becomes a polymath – a person who is beyond a genius. It’s a word we use throughout the trilogy as we felt it best describes the orphans’ off-the-scale intellects.

A polymath is actually a multiple-subject genius. However, the criterion for a polymath is someone who is an expert in vastly different, almost unrelated fields. For example, an artist who works in the film, theatre and literary industries and who is a masterful actor, screenwriter, novelist, film director and film producer would not qualify as a polymath as those fields are all artistic mediums and closely related.

Rather, a polymath is someone who has excelled in, or completely mastered, a variety of unrelated or loosely related subjects. These could be as diverse as economics, dance, architecture, mathematics, history, forensic science, cooking and entomology.

And before you go calling yourself a polymath, don’t forget you must be an expert in each field. Unfortunately being a jack-of-all-trades and master-of-none doesn’t count.

One of the best examples of a polymath is Leonardo da Vinci.

Born in Italy in 1452, Leonardo was a sculptor, painter, architect, mathematician, musician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, botanist, geologist, cartographer and writer. Although he received an informal education that included geometry, Latin and mathematics, he was essentially an autodidact, or a self-taught individual.

The man who many have called the most diversely talented person who ever lived, left behind an array of masterpieces in the painting world alone, including The Last Supper, Mona Lisa and The Vitruvian Man.

*************************************

What if there are faster and easier ways to learn and study than the modi operandi currently being taught in mainstream education systems?

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ is the ultimate treatise on accelerated learning methods. Written by novelists, filmmakers and independent researchers James Morcan & Lance Morcan with a foreword by leading scientist Dr. Takaaki Musha, this book shatters the myth that geniuses are born not developed. It reveals how most instances of above-the-ordinary intelligences are acquired thru superior cognitive techniques or brain enhancing technologies.

Renowned geniuses examined include Apple founder Steve Jobs who as a 19-year-old began practising an ancient discipline that activated previously dormant parts of his brain; Albert Einstein who came up with his great theory of relativity while using a rare mental practice; Kim Peek (the real ‘Rain Man’) who could speed read any book in five minutes flat with total comprehension; Indian mathematical mastermind Srinivasa Ramanujan who, although untrained, created extraordinary formulas that left academics gobsmacked; Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who composed entire pieces while in a specific altered state of mind.

Among the discoveries shared with readers are brain waves common to geniuses and the various ways to induce those brain waves; mental techniques the world’s elite and A-List celebrities are quietly using to help them process information while they’re asleep or in virtual worlds; chemical substances students and academics the world over employ to kick-start the brain into overdrive; and cutting-edge technologies business tycoons and professional athletes employ to gain a cerebral edge over their competitors.

Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, GENIUS INTELLIGENCE lists dozens of practical methods to increase IQ and speed-learn any subject.

Book two in The Underground Knowledge Series, it follows the release earlier this year of our first non-fiction book, THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy.

After a decade of research, and searching in unusual places, we firmly believe the contents of Genius Intelligence contain the most advanced and radical accelerated learning methods on the planet right now.

Brain gland activation and other advanced learning methods

Activating dormant brain glands is another learning method used inside the Pedemont Orphanage, the fictional Chicago orphanage that serves as home and school for the orphans in our thriller series The Orphan Trilogy.

We highlight this and other advanced learning techniques in our non-fiction book THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy.

Here’s an excerpt from the book:

All individuals have a certain amount of dormant or underutilized brain areas. Every human brain ever mapped scientifically has shown at least some inactive cells and neurons. This area of neuroscience, especially concerning little known brain glands, may hold the answer as to why we only use such a small percentage of our brains.

As we wrote in The Orphan Factory: “Rare earth magnets were embedded inside each helmet for the purpose of activating certain brain glands. Glands that were dormant in the average person.”

Neuromagnetic helmets and similar brain stimulation technologies are not just confined to the realms of fiction.

Transcranial direct current stimulation, or TDCS, is a brain stimulation technique. It’s carried out by applying a helmet or cap to the individual’s head. TDCS targets specific parts of the brain with low voltage electrical currents. This allows for the alteration of electrical states of neurons in targeted areas of the brain.

TDCS is in its infancy, but early studies have shown it enhances motor skills, memory recall and concentration. As a result, the US military now employs TDCS to assist fighter pilots, snipers and other personnel.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, is a similar non-invasive brain enhancement technology except it uses magnets instead of electricity. TMS’s magnetic fields are capable of altering neurons in targeted areas of the brain.

Neuromagnetic helmets and similar devices have been nicknamed ‘zap caps’ and preliminary studies show they have the potential to improve brain function in numerous ways.

Polyglotting in the Pedemont Orphanage

The Pedemont orphans all speak a large number of languages and are therefore polyglots. Although we never actually specify how many, it’s implied in our trilogy that each orphan can speak dozens of languages. They also have the ability to learn new ones quickly, and more than once we show our orphans, or orphan-operatives, mastering languages in the days leading up to a new mission.

While this may seem far-fetched, there have been persistent reports of CIA agents mastering languages within one week. If true, this is most likely a direct result of classified learning techniques or brain technologies not available to the general public.

In 2004, British autistic savant Daniel Tammet shocked Icelandic peoples when he appeared on live television to demonstrate his overnight mastery of their notoriously complex language.

Daniel Tammet…autism no barrier.

Tammet spoke fluent Icelandic, having only studied the language for seven days. 

Virtual reality training

Virtual reality is another advanced learning technology utilized within the walls of the orphanage. However, we specify it’s not virtual reality as most of us know it.

This excerpt from The Orphan Factory explains what we are getting at: “Like most Omega technologies, it was a technology that was decades ahead of official science, and although virtual reality was widely known and available to the public, this military version had been suppressed from the masses because of its incredible power.”

Although a suppressed form of the technology lies very much in government cover-up theories, learning with virtual reality is proven to be effective in a wide variety of diverse fields. Learning via this technology’s computer-simulated environment is currently used the world over in the military, medical, aviation and architectural sectors to name but a few.

Virtual reality…like the real thing.

Virtual reality allows users to practice as if they are actually engaging in activities in the real world. The difference between reality and virtual reality can sometimes be so small it’s indistinguishable to the human brain.

Or to put it another way, as we state in The Orphan Factory: “Carrying out assignments under the influence of this particular software was no different to performing them in real life – at least not as far as the mind was concerned.”

Outrunning the conscious mind

Brain-waves-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In our conspiracy thriller series THE ORPHAN TRILOGY, in which 23 genetically-enhanced orphans are raised to become elite spies, we make an assumption that advanced learning techniques are not being taught in the mainstream education system. In fact, we go beyond that and question whether superior learning methods are being withheld from today’s students – or, more to the point, being reserved for select individuals.

Fantasy, you say?

Well, let’s examine that…

It has long been speculated that secret societies, mystery schools, intelligence agencies and other clandestine organizations have advanced learning methods superior to anything taught in even the most prestigious universities. Methods which are only ever taught to the chosen few – initiates who have all sworn an oath to keep the group’s syllabus in house and never reveal any of the teachings to outsiders.

In The Ninth Orphan, book one in our thriller series, our protagonist Nine (the ninth-born orphan) is a pure genius who exhibits a level of intelligence rarely if ever seen in any character in literature. He has a photographic memory, can read entire books in five minutes flat and speaks dozens of languages. Plus he learns new skills extremely fast and is highly adaptable – so much so that he’s nicknamed the human chameleon.

How Nine reached that level of intelligence, though, is merely implied or hinted at in this first book in the series.

In its prequel, The Orphan Factory, we had to design an education system that would reveal exactly how Nine grew up to become that smart. He and his fellow orphans are exposed to advanced learning techniques mainstream educators can only dream of.

Outrunning the conscious mind was one such technique. We explain it in our book THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy.

Here’s an excerpt from the book:

Developing a genius mindset essentially comes down to two things: operating at speed and using the subconscious mind more than the conscious. This intuitive or relaxed approach to study is the polar opposite of traditional and mainstream forms of education. Apart from some artistic subjects like music or dance, learning institutions generally require pupils to concentrate hard at all times. In other words, students have no choice but to always use their conscious minds, thereby suppressing the great reservoir of the subconscious.

How to increase brain power

When we are forced to think s-l-o-w-l-y like this our brain functions at well below optimum levels. That’s why school students often feel exhausted as studying in this fashion is incredibly draining. But how can we feel mentally drained when neuroscientists and brain researchers agree we each only use a tiny percentage of our brain?

Those who have read The Orphan Trilogy will recall our orphans often go into a daydream state whenever they need answers to life-and-death situations. This is because when you defocus you allow your intuitive self, or your subconscious mind, to deliver you the answers you need. It just happens, without reaching for it.

We’ve all experienced pondering a problem all day long only to find we receive the solution when forgetting about the problem and thinking of something else. When we stop concentrating so hard, we allow our subconscious to flourish, and those who do this more than others are often called geniuses.

As head of the Pedemont Orphanage, Tommy Kentbridge says to his students in The Orphan Factory, “The subconscious mind is where all higher intelligences exist. Every genius throughout history – Tesla, Einstein, Da Vinci – tapped into the infinite power of their subconscious minds.”

Studies have shown the subconscious mind can process around 11 million bits of information per second. The conscious mind, however, can only process about 15 to 16 bits of information per second. Quite a difference!

Brain power!

One of the best ways to bring the subconscious mind into the equation is to outrun the conscious mind by going so fast it literally can’t keep up. So, at Chicago’s Pedemont Orphanage, our orphans do everything at speed. They’re also taught how to learn things indirectly instead of directly. By skirting around the edges of complex subjects, the children never get information overload or lose their way.

As we wrote in The Ninth Orphan, “In the tradition of Leonardo da Vinci and history’s other great polymaths, the children were taught how to fully understand anything by using an advanced mental technique where they would simply life their minds into comprehension.”

To life your mind into comprehension is once again the polar opposite of modern education systems which imply there’s only one way to learn: consciously and with intense concentration.

While this indirect way of learning may sound flaky, it is actually backed up by hard science and is not remotely mystical. This approach is about brainwaves and understanding, or recognizing, the optimal state for learning. When you hit the right groove, it’s possible to learn quickly and in a satisfying, even enjoyable, fashion.

It is that singularity of mind top sportsmen and martial arts masters achieve. Psychologists sometimes refer to this ultimate mental state as the zone, but it’s really just about having the most effective brainwaves for learning.

Any time study feels laborious the student is most likely in the beta brainwave, which occurs when the conscious mind is governing. A beta-dominant mind is the perfect recipe for mediocrity and boredom.

The subconscious mind comes into play in other less common brainwaves such as alpha, gamma, theta and delta. These brainwaves have also been shown to be activated when test subjects are laughing, daydreaming, meditating, singing, dancing or spontaneously moving about. Now how many math or English teachers would tolerate those activities in their classrooms?

What if there really is a much quicker, less methodical way of learning that allows you to learn without learning?

Sounds paradoxical, doesn’t it?
